Jim was one of my favourite people in the whole wide world. He was the most genuine person that I have ever met. He never tried to be someone he wasn’t. In spite of his physical challenges, he always had time to listen to others and show support. He really care about others. And, he did this with his wonderful sense of humour and was able to laugh at himself and his predicaments. He was one of a kind. I am very grateful for all of the conversations I had with him over the past 42 years.

When I first met Mr Hamilton I was afraid of him. However after our first conversation I realized he was just a gentle giant. We bonded over our taste in music and his corny "dad" jokes. He always made me feel welcomed in his home and he always had some sorta cool fact to tell me. I remember one time he helped me fix my computer. I recall being so impressed that a man that was 40 years older than me that had no business knowing anything about computers was able to help me. Whenever I saw Mr Hamilton he was always jamming away on one of his awesome guitars, which I always thought was so cool. Oh and he rode motorcycles! How incredibly cool is that?!
Basically I thought Mr Hamilton was the epitome of cool and I will miss him dearly.

My condolences to the Hamilton family.

You're in my thoughts.
